Need a Good Frame Painter, Seattle East Side area

Rather than posting on Craigs list, I thought I'd post here.

My bike carbon has about 20Kmiles and lots of chips and scratches. Does anyone know of a serious reputable frame painter? The frame was inspected by Greggs and has no visible cracks.

I'm not look'n to get gouged here...but the bike needs a really good paint job that can do another 20K or more. He/she will need to do better than a can of spray paint Can any auto body shop do this?

Call auto shops that do custom and ask if they work on fiberglass and carbon. If they say yeah, then mention it's a bicycle and see if they're willing to paint it.

Not Eastside, but for a carbon expert - Calfee repaints carbon frames.
